With Halloween tomorrow and lots of parents hitting the pavement with their kids, Trick or Treating, this is a great time to remind you of perhaps the most commonly seen condition here at our office: Plantar Fasciitis
Heel pain, arch pain, morning pain on the first few steps of the day, these are hallmark signs that you may be suffering from this chronic, painful and annoying condition. There is good news though, custom orthotics can help dispurse and alleciate the pain you may be experiencing. More info to follow and then a chance to contact us with questions you may have.
Plantar Fasciitis - Plantar fasciitis: formerly known as "policeman's heel", is a painful inflammatory condition caused by excessive wear to the "plantar fascia" (bottom fibrous area) of the foot. The cause can be from a specific trauma to the foot or from chronic repetitive strain often associated with the flat overly pronated foot. Pain is usually felt on the underside of the heel, inside more often than outside of the arch, and is often most intense with the first steps of the day. It is commonly associated with long periods of weight bearing. Excessive weight or weight gain, jobs that require a lot of standing or walking on hard surfaces, shoes with little or no arch support, and inactivity are also associated with the condition. In advanced cases plantar fasciitis can lead to heel spurring on the calcaneus, in which case it is the underlying condition, and not the spur itself, which produces the pain. Achilles tendinitis can sometimes be associated with plantar fasciitis. Treat the source and the symptoms will subside!
Plantar fasciitis and achilles tendinitis can be successfully treatment with the support of custom orthotic inserts. Dr. Michael Horowitz offers a 5-Step process to successfully treating this condition. He can help evaluate your condition and recommend the best course of action for you.
